How do I delete an app from the BB10 simulator (10.2.1.1925)?

I tried touching the app until it pulses and deleting it and it comes back when I restart the simulator.

 

I tried using "blackberry-deploy -uninstallApp" but I get "failure 500 TypeError" for every sensible package-id.

 

I tried https://SIMULATOR_IP_ADDRESS/appInstaller.html but the browser can't find the page.

 

What's the official BlackBerry way to remove an app from the simulator?

Try turning the emulator off first and then turning it on again

I shut down the VM and restarted it and my "TestProject" app is still there.

 

Is there a way to shut down the (virtual) phone without shutting down VMware?

When this happens,  I found that you have to Stop debugging.

Restart the VM.

Then do the long hold on the icon and then delete it.

I'll try that and see what happens.

Nope. Didn't work for me. When I restart the simulator the app is back.

Just want to state that you are doing it right. This may be a bug in this new simulator release. I've never had a problem removing an app from the simulator with the long press then tap X method.

I think you're right. I had the old simulator at home and I could remove apps. I upgraded to the latest simulator and now I can't. I guess we'll just have to wait for the next version. Thanks for the help.

A silly question but as a sanity check, are you sure you are shutting down the VM and not starting from a previous snapshot?


If you've been helped click on Like Button, if you've been saved buy the app. :smileyhappy:

Yeah. I delete the apps from the simulator and restart the VM and they come back. This worked for earlier versions.

 

I'm running the simulator in VMware Player and that doesn't have snapshots anyway! :smileywink:
